  1. Trans Service Thought

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    Assuming that you have no leaks, is there any reason you cannot do the below: 1) When draining, for this example exactly 5 Qts come out. 2) Cold: pump oil in until it just begins to run out, stop. 3) Slightly lift rear of truck, start engine, pump the remaining oil back in to equal the 5qts...

  3. So I thought I fixed my misfires ? 2010 5.0 N/A

    Range Rover Mark III / L322
    I was getting the CEL with a few cylinders showing misfire plus the random misfire at start up. I did the BG injector cleaner and all seemed well. Started to get the codes again. Never did it feel rough or odd. Driving home the other night, I accelerated up a hill on the highway and I got the...
  4. Have any diesel owners thought about a tune?

    Range Rover Mark IV / L405
    Just wondering what is out there and if generally this engine responds well to the tune? Based on the factory numbers it would seem that a tune might just be awesome.

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    The auto box has failed :sad:. I retired last Friday so SWMBO'd and I went out shopping and then off for a celebration dinner, car ran sweet as a nut. Used it all over the weekend no problems and then my mam asked if I would take her out to get some things. At 83 she's a bit, what's the word...

    Range Rover Mark II / P38
    Following my heads blowing a few months back my exhaust got filled with water and now I know the engine is running perfect I decided to do an exhaust mod. My 4.0ltr V8 now has only a Defender Puma back box bolted on at the first flange after the two down pipes join. I've modified the Defender...

  12. A thought about accelerating after ECO startup

    Range Rover Sport II / L494
    This has been on my mind for a while and I thought I would post it. Some here may think it's stupid so take it with a grain of salt. I have always been around cars and engines. I have built motors and know what makes them tick. In my mind, it is important to allow oil pressure to build up...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    It looked black when I first saw it, but when I brought it home and looked under the hood it said Buckingham Blue. Purchase Order says black and all the advertising for the vehicle says black. I love the car but now I'm dissapointed in the color. I drove 11 hours to pick up the car. Thinking...

    Range Rover Sport / L320
    Advice from genuine owners, not what someone thought they read about. Hello all, As I am sure this has been previous discusses far too many times to count, I'd like to know if the poor-reliability reputation of the Range Rover Sport HSE (specifically the 2008 that I recently purchased) is...
